The following information was compiled and is maintained by Michael Wall ((808)737-3786) using both personal resources and input from members of the Jembe-list. These lists, while extensive, are not exhaustive and will be periodically updated. You are strongly encouraged to (1) submit new titles (please use the existing format and include all the details including company, category and a brief review) and (2) provide missing information for items on this list recording #, year, etc.) and submit reviews if they are missing.

If you are interested in a particular video, and complete information is not listed, feel free to contact Michael at ((808)737-3786), who will be happy to check his personal library for the details (which will also then be added to this reference). Michael would also be pleased to receive notice of correction or comments in format, typos, etc.
